Post Agent Orange, Benzene, and MDS

I have seen a lot of discussion about whether Agent Orange could have caused MDS. Below are the links to a 3-part post on Agent Orange and how it was contaminated and accidentally made harmful to humans. The article discusses the structure of Agent Orange which it says contains benzene rings. I have seen Veterans’ claims that asserted that since benzene is very frequently listed as a cause of MDS, then Agent Orange, with its benzene rings, could be assumed to have caused MDS. As chemistry is not my forte I admit I do not fully understand the article but am simply passing on the links for informational purposes.




Enjoy the read
